I AM A WHITE WOMAN BY BIRTH; WHO ARE YOU?

I am a woman.
I am wife to a Marine.
I am a mother.
I am a grandmother.
I am a Christian, by belief and faith.
(Baptized by the Holy Spirit)
I AM A WHITE WOMAN BY BIRTH – DECIDED BY THE LORD
(Psalm 139, Jeremiah 29:11, Galatians 1:15)

I believe The Lord has a plan for my life that is good.
(Jeremiah 29:11 again.)

America is a super-majority white population. We are not bad people because our skin is white, by any sane definition. Isn’t this the whole idea of MLK (and many others), that our skin color does not define the measure of who we are individually, or as a group. Our media is involved in a reverse discrimination propaganda scheme for decades that is hardly to be believed by intelligent people in the 21st century.

America is also 85% Christian, which also has a super-majority of white people. We are a good people as evidenced in our love of positive endeavor, family, charity, and goodness. We are NOT Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, KKK Members, or any other title others wish to falsely appoint to us.

I am appalled by the number of people in the above two groups brave enough to vote for Trump, who have since gone to sleep, and allow a group-think mentality to run amuck in our nation. Why anyone watches the – paid for by our enemies – news reports, is becoming beyond ridiculously sad. ONLY AMERICANS TOGETHER CAN MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. This was Trumps whole campaign, and it requires the mental and physical activity of those who voted for him, to stand with him, and not let our enemies win the day – any day!

In prior generations, to be conservative thinkers, made us the backbone of a great nation. We were careful to raise our children to be responsible, productive and loving. It is the abandonment of knowing what it means to be a Christian nation that has so many allowing themselves to be called such vile names as White Supremacists. Consequently, we are now in for the fight of our lives to set our nation back on its correct Representative Constitutional Republic course. The more of us who wake up and join in, the quicker we will get rid of the insanity.

However, I always offer the caution: that does not mean that we become a nation of witch hunters. Learn from the history that tells people that turning 360 degrees from group insanity leaves you on the other side of the group insanity coin. Be humble in your self-corrections, and be strong in your faith. Take your prayers to your knees in your heart and mind, God will do the rest. (Also remember: “Matthew 18:20 (KJV) For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.”)

Face it. America is full of “luke-warm” Christians, and “milk” Christians who need to come back to the real church. The Church is not any denomination, but the Body of Christ – Period. Yes, we are to have fellowship, but that means as Christians – not divided into over 2,000 denominations. Divided we fall.

There are the true lessons in The Bible that must be learned. Here is a good one: You must love the enemy in your heart and soul; but you may have to defend innocents with The Lord’s help from your enemy. No, I didn’t even understand it for many years, but I know that there can be understanding – one step at a time until you get there. We, who have come to understanding the Bible on a deeper level, spent much time floundering before we got the insight as He means it to be. It came from much prayer before and after study, and the avenues opened to other people further in their endeavor to learn and understand.

‘Through Him All Things Are Possible. It is time for Americans who are Christian to come to the true church in the Body of Christ. When we do that, humble ourselves, have sincere repentance for our sins, and become changed after connecting, and being baptized in the Holy Spirit, He will start healing us and our nation.’ (2 Chronicles 7:14)
Taking you back to my childhood . . . so long ago . . . read the words . . .

“Onward, Christian Soldiers”

by Arthur Sullivan

‘This hymn is Sullivan’s most popular hymn. The hymn’s theme is taken from references in the New Testament of the Christian soldier for Christ.’
(II Timothy 2:3 (KJV): “Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.”)

1

“Onward Christian soldiers!

Marching as to war,

With the cross of Jesus

Going on before.

Christ, the royal Master,

Leads against the foe;

Forward into battle,

See, His banners go!

Onward, Christian soldiers!

Marching as to war,

With the cross of Jesus,

Going on before.

2

“At the name of Jesus

Satan’s host doth flee;

On then, Christian soldiers,

On to victory!

Hell’s foundations quiver

At the shout of praise:

Brothers, lift your voices,

Loud your anthems raise!

3

Like a mighty army

Moves the Church of God:

Brothers, we are treading

Where the saints have trod;

We are not divided,

All one Body we—

One in faith and Spirit,

One eternally.

4

“Crowns and thrones may perish,

Kingdoms rise and wane;

But the Church of Jesus

Constant will remain.

Gates of hell can never

’Gainst the Church prevail;

We have Christ’s own promise,

Which can never fail.

5

“Onward, then, ye people!

Join our happy throng;

Blend with ours your voices

In the triumph song.

Glory, laud and honor

Unto Christ, the King;

This through countless ages

Men and angels sing.”

Two good places to re-start your journey into your Bible:
Ephesians 3 KJV; John 1 KJV

God Bless.

‘MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN’ SERIES – COMMENTARY ONE – MARRIAGE

MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Juanita Holloway-Walters

This is it; the one that caused writer’s block. The subject matter has done much to divide America, and all the way down to the family and close, warm, personal, friend level in society. A question: Why should I turn my back on my centuries old Christian beliefs of marriage, to pretend to embrace someone else’s beliefs – JUST BECAUSE THEY WANT ME TO THINK SOMETHING I AM NOT HARD WIRED TO THINK? It is a ridiculous proposition. I am praying the emotional blackmail of deceitful Political Correctness has run its course, and failed in America. We may be surprised at how fast certain aspects of the Politically Correct model of America may change over-night, if American Christians turn away from Secular Christianity fraught with agnostic, and even pagan beliefs.

It still confounds me as to how such a small segment of our population was hijacked by the enemy within, using the truly evil practices of Political Correctness to insert counter-culture ideals into the very core of our American Culture. The “latest estimate shows that 3.8% of our population actually identify as LGBT,” as per Gallup. (1) We can scarcely turn on the big or little screens without having the gay lifestyle crammed down our throats. The fabric of our Christian nation is weak to have allowed this content to be in the realm of 100% saturation of our children through school, through television, and through music.

SKREEEEECCCHHHHHHH! STOP! NEWS FLASH! THE LIONS SHARE OF BLAME FOR OUR POLITICALLY CORRECT BROKEN AMERICA IS NOT THE 3.8% OF OUR POPULATION — IT IS A LARGE PORTION OF THE 75% OF AMERICANS WHO SAY THEY ARE CHRISTIANS – but, do not follow the Commandments Jesus gave us; nor do they follow the Ten Commandments handed down to Moses from God. No Christian precept may have been violated more than the scriptures telling us about Marriage. How many married Christians are following what the Word of God says about marriage? What Baby Boomers passed down to our children, and grandchildren is a lack of respect for our heterosexual Christian marriage. If the institution of marriage had not been sorely abused, we would be a wholesome America not needing to “Make America Great Again.”

How many marriages failed because The Lord was not present in the marriage? I can tell you that The Lord was not present in my failed marriages. Then I got on my knees and asked the Lord to forgive me for having a victim mentality when it came to relationships with men. I did not know my scriptures well, and therefore, I had no reference of what life was all about. Because I did not know my Bible, I was totally without any real help. We exist for God’s glory, and if we are here for God’s glory, then we should know what pleases God. One day I prayed to understand the scriptures, and it was as if a light had been turned on in my soul, and in my mind. Not only do I understand the scriptures, but I also understand who is in the scriptures and why my understanding is so important to a happy life.

Not long after that, I prayed on my knees, and asked The Lord to pick me a husband who loved The Lord, would be faithful to me, and who would love me in all the ways I love. My marriage with John for two decades has been a miracle to me every day. The love and respect in the beginning has grown over the years. Hardships came and went without much fuss, because we had something bigger in our lives than teen aged children testing us at every turn, careers, wealth, or health issues. I look back and see much love and laughter every day of our marriage ordained by God. We pray to be an example to our loved ones, and to others . . . even to be a catalyst for others to improve their marriages. John and I see other good marriages, and we are further strengthened in the purpose of the gifts God has given each of us to be a help to you when we are able.

For Americans to “Make America Great Again,” America’s Christian population must renew their relationship with Christ, and renew their commitment to great marriages. Great marriages make great families. Great families make an involved citizenry that looks to local schools, churches, and community institutions with The Lord’s Christian Absolutes in mind. WE DO NOT CHECK OUR CHRISTIAN FAITH AT ANY DOOR, FOR ANYONE. If we are Christian, who we are is Christian to the bone.

Sadly, only a small percentage of today’s American Christian population has read The Bible. Because they do not know what their Bible says, they have nothing of encouraging value when it is most needed.
“Today, about one-third of American adults report reading the Bible once a week or more. The percentage is highest among Elders (49%) and lowest among Millennials (24%).” (2) The Word of God, contains the Moral Absolutes Christians need to live a wholesome life.  ‘All come short of His Glory’ (3); and when we have fallen short of His Glory, we are to repent, seek forgiveness, and move on in life without the need to keep going back to learn the same lesson over, and over again. We are to grow spiritually, for which there is much help in studying The Bible.

Satan, and his minions, exist to trip you up by giving you the Big Lie of Moral Relativism. It means that my faith is the faith of life, and someone else’s is the faith of death. Moral Relativism says that they are equal and both true. It also means that the death crowd believes their views should be taught to my children, and it is only fair for my children to be exposed to their minority faith. I do not believe in Moral Relativism, and cannot abide by such negative and lethal forces to be allowed anywhere near my children, and grandchildren.

The truth is that our marriages are a reminder of the relationship Christ has with His Church here on Earth. When we dishonor the millennium old tradition of Christian marriage, we are also dishonoring our relationship with Christ – we are The Church – Christ’s Church. Our marriages should be an example to all the goodness of Holy union with our spouse, and with our Lord as members of His Church. There are many scriptures about marriage, but this is the most excellent in my view:

“EPHESIANS 5:
“20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto The Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the Church: and He is the saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as The Church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

26 That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by The Word,

27 That He might present it to Himself a glorious Church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as The Lord The Church:

30 For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.

31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and The Church.

33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.”

Not that John and I have the perfect marriage, for there is no such thing under the sun; however, we stand on 20+ years of the closest thing to it that either of us have ever seen. We have seen other good marriages, but ours is almost supernaturally excellent. The Lord matched us up – two givers. The love and mutual respect is a part of the success. I think that we like our male and female roles, and we enjoy being male and female as God made us down to the DNA in our cells. We have also been blessed beyond measure, and our prayers have all been answered. We do not forget to ask Him to help us attain needed medical help, as well as help for others. Some say we are lucky. I don’t believe in luck; I believe in recognizing the blessings in our lives without ceasing.

Solomon was the second son of David and Bathsheba. His mother worried that his father had taught him to be a womanizer. Bathsheba’s pet name for her son is Lemuel and we see in Proverb 31 the advice she imparts to him regarding a wife – a wife worthy of a King!!

PROVERB 31
10 
Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies.

11 The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

12 She will do him good and not evil all the days of her life.

13 She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands.

14 She is like the merchants’ ships; she bringeth her food from afar.

15 She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens.

16 She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard.

17 She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms.

18 She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night.

19 She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff.

20 She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy.

21 She is not afraid of the snow for her household: for all her household are clothed with scarlet.

22 She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple.

23 Her husband is known in the gates, when he sitteth among the elders of the land.

24 She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.

25 Strength and honour are her clothing; and she shall rejoice in time to come.

26 She openeth her mouth with wisdom; and in her tongue is the law of kindness.

27 She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.

28 Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.

29 Many daughters have done virtuously, but thou excellest them all.

30 Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the Lord, she shall be praised.

31 Give her of the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”

We have witnessed in America the deliberate masculation of women by certain factions of our population, and the counter emasculation of men in that process. For every movement under the sun, there is a counter movement that occurs. Women hit their forties and wondered at their biological clocks tick, tick, ticking away, and the absence of available marriageable men. Many of these women became bitter and angry, without recognizing if they had played a part in the sad outcome . . . without asking for forgiveness for the error of their ways, and their biological clock alarms stopped ringing. Many men who turned from women, have not found the peace they were seeking. The saddest part in all of this is the effect it has had on the next two generations.

The studies of children in America is a hotbed of information. It matters not who did the study, or how scientific, there is always a group of naysayers. “Dr. Mark Regnerus is a University of Texas Sociologist who rocketed to fame – or infamy, depending on one’s views of homosexual parenting – in 2012 with the publication of his study about how well children are doing.” (4) Other studies from the LGBT crowd have proven to be “fixed” by the subjects in the study. Dr. Regnerus’ study skyrocketed because of his actual random sampling of a large study group. BUT, we can look to studies of children from broken homes, alcoholic homes, abusive home, welfare homes, and homes of any extreme element, to find that children from these homes are in an emotional pickle, just as the children in the Dr. Regnerus study.

Children need boundaries for themselves and their friends (so important), for their siblings, and for their parents – the rules of acceptable behavior – or Moral Absolutes. To find success in our lives, we need only look to our Lord and Savior, and what He tells us in the scriptures. My favorite place for Jesus advice is the book of Matthew, but they are found in all the Gospels, as well as the letters Jesus wrote to the churches in Revelation, and on every page of the Bible. The most important and widely read book since Jesus death and resurrection, is sadly not being read by all Christians. It is the only book that will help heal our Republic; and it is pivotal in American’s “Making America Great Again.” Without a return to Biblical Christianity, any attempts of restoring the Republic would be weak at best. This is where the healing must begin.

MR. BILLY GRAHAM INSPIRES ME

Face the Cross now . . . or later . . . two different outcomes.
Now – accepting the meaning of the Cross and Christ.
Later – at mankind’s individual day-of-judgment.
So many people in America today demonstrate with their words and actions an expressed belief that men are gods; and men can say and do anything without fear of consequences; therefore, the conclusion in effect is that nothing has eternal meaning.
Men can fool others – and themselves – but not God.
How has America fallen so far into the depths of existential deceit?
Why are there so many Luke-Warm American Christians?
So many believing the wide path of tolerance leads them to “collective salvation” . . .
– tolerance even for humans who teach their children to hate and murder . . .
– tolerance even for those who maim and treat women like dirt . . .
– tolerance for vile nastiness of human expression in our entertainment . . .
– tolerance for multitude of man’s laws making almost all citizens guilty of something – destroying their
   spirit and natural tendencies good-ward . . . or God-ward – and ignoring Gods Commandments . . .
– tolerance for those who do not study God’s word, but condemn it . . .
– tolerance for stealing the fruits of another’s labor, while not even making an honest effort to take
   responsibility for one’s own existence . . .
– we are seeing tolerance for every religion (atheism is a religion) except Christianity and Judaism . . .

Salvation is based on belief in the gospel regarding Jesus Christ, as prophesied in the Bible.
My Creator is evident in everything seen and unseen (quantum).
The question you do not allow yourself is this:
Why would I question my Creator’s ability to come to Earth by being born of a woman into human life,
(to experience our life on Earth – why I think that ‘created in His image’ is our souls – ending the argument on God’s ‘color’)
and to perform miracles for thousands to see,
and to die on the Cross to make a lasting impression in the world of men,
and to die on the cross to atone for my sins – the only way to cleanse me,
and to be buried in a sealed cave,
and to rise alive three days later and be seen by hundreds,
and to ascend from this world to where He chose to be in Heaven;
but also leaving behind that link between each of us who become aware of it and to Him by belief –
His Holy Spirit.
Once I believed, I am in contact with Him 24/7/365, and I am changed forever – AND MY FELLOW HUMANS LIVE IN A BETTER WORLD WHEN I AM THINKING AND BEING AS A CHILD OF GOD.
Being in a state of Grace and Prayer are in me now like a clean and gentle breeze I breathe as I travel through this finite reality named Earth.
I pray that if you have not come to know our Lord, our Creator, our Savior, that you give it some serious thought.
Before reading scripture, pray on it for understanding and you will come to see the Lord’s signature in every word on every page of the Bible.
The books that made it into the Bible – why would you think that a Creator capable of Creating you would not be able to influence which books made the Bible?
Pray to know Him and the truth of the Gospel – and as the Bible says:
John 8:32 “And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Yes; and Amen.
Billy Graham is an amazing teacher – here is his message to America on his 95th Birthday . . .
